Why are you changing the display properties of the <tr> (to ‘block’) and the <td> (to ‘inline-block’)?

Table elements have their own default display properties which will be more predictable for you to work with.

If I were you, unless there’s a good reason for the change – maybe with the bigger picture that we’re unaware of – I’d take out the ‘display’ lines in the CSS (and the widths) and let the table elements revert back to their default behaviour.

Without inline-blocks screwing up the cell distributions, they’ll naturally fall into a more uniform-looking grid.

If this isn’t you’re intention, let us know what is, maybe with a simple diagram.
